Four-day weeks are always so confusing to me. I’m not sure what exactly my brain is so confused about, but I seem to never know which day it is, and for some reason, they seem longer than regular weeks (#nonsense).
But there definitely are silver linings to them. First of all, you get an extra day of weekend. Also, the next weekend is one day closer to the beginning than it is on regular weeks.

Certainly not the healthiest of meals, but that’s what holidays are for… right?After lunch, we zigzagged through the street to burn off some of the calories and tick some more iconic buildings off our to-see list.
